About Me

East Ayton, Scarborough, North Yorkshire
A group of ladies who enjoy traditional embroidery but who meet once a month to try some experimental work. We meet at Ayton Village Hall on the third Thursday in the month for a full day and again on the first Thursday for half a day. We currently have a waiting list of people who want to join us.

April Meeting

We had a visit from the PAT testing man today, all of us getting our machines checked out ready for the residential workshop season.   Because they had their machines with them, some ladies decided it was a good opportunity to get some machine sewing done, so two were quilting and one was making machine cords.
Most people were busy with their Warriors work as October is now looming up and a sense of urgency is beginning to take hold.
Below are some of the papers we all made last month with Niki Hampson of Pulpitations.  Of course, Colleen has made hers into a lovely book with a poem she has written about becoming 'beige'.

Roma has been busy felting for her Warriors. Tea is always at the ready.

Colleen has done a one day workshop with Chris Gray and was finishing off her piece of work.  Several of us are doing the Regional Summer School with the Embroiderers' Guild and will have a 3 day workshop with Chris so hope it is as good as this looks.
